Rain, Rain, Go AWAY!

Wow! What a second day we have had!

For those of you who don’t know, our theme for camp this summer is “On Your Mark…Get Set…GO!” and we are referencing the Five Marks of Mission. (To learn more about the Five Marks of Mission in the Episcopal Church, check out this website: http://www.episcopalchurch.org/page/five-marks-mission )

Our Marks for today were Tell and Teach 🙂


We kicked off our morning with (well, besides an always awesome breakfast) chapel time and craft time. We decorated backpacks so that we will all have something to carry our things around in.

Here are some pictures from our time at Chapel. We learned about:

Tell – Proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom

Teach – Baptize and Nurture New Believers

If you’re wondering about the tarp – each group had to stand on it while it was flat on the ground and flip it around to the other side without stepping off. Working on our collaboration and communication. Definitely a skill that helps when we need to TELL!

After lunch we took a bit of an extended siesta (just so we would be extra prepared for the rest of the day!) We kicked off our afternoon with some energizers before heading outside for some water slide and outdoor activity time!!

Right on schedule, because it knew we were ready for dinner…the rain came!

So we improvised with what we had to do to stay dry since most of us had just changed into dry clothes and left our ponchos in the cabins!!!

We had a fun evening indoors playing some games together and just forming new friendships! We were able to end our evening with some check ins around the camp fire.

Here are a few more pictures from the day:)

Please enjoy and we will see you tomorrow for Hawaiian Day!!
